Good location under 10 minutes walk to The Abbey. On a wide boulevard with little passing traffic and no late night "merriment" to bother you. Standard room small but perfectly comfortable, with clean new furnishings. No wardrobe or air-con and a long climb up the four or five flights of stairs to some rooms as no lift. Breakfast was of...

Bath is quite expensive to stay so £119 per night for B&B here was, I thought, a good deal. Staff were friendly and efficient. Room was adequate for what we needed. Stayed 2 nights (standard room) would choose a bigger room if staying longer though. Good selection of tea in the room with lovely biscuits which were replaced as was...

My pre booked airbnb cancelled the day I was due to arrive in Bath. A friend had emailed me a list of possible accommodation and the Edgar Townhouse had a great deal on with availability. I was very happy with my choice. Located very close to central Bath and all the sights incl Roman Baths, Theatre Royal, Thermae Spa and...

Stayed here for one night with my mum. From arrival to departure the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bedroom was small but nice and comfortable, with all the amenities supplied. Good to keep fit though as we had to climb 4 flights of stairs, not good for people who struggle with the stairs as there is no lift....

We stayed here for three nights at the end of March. The staff were wonderful especially the women amongst them, carrying suitcases, rebooking rooms while being friendly and cheerful all the while. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped , our basement rooms were a bit noisy during the day but really quiet at night. Breakfast was delicious with a...

Just returned from a 2 night mini-break in Bath and stayed at the excellent Edgar Townhouse, a very comfortable B&B. The location is perfect and for £8 (parking permit for the whole stay) the parking is excellent. Would highly recommend.

Spent a night there after watchin the rugby. Minutes from the ground but also city centre. Bath is not a cheap place to stay so in comparison was value for money. Room was well designed with a clean, contemporary style. Not the biggest room but everything was well designed and made the best of the space. Only thing I'd have...

We stayed here for one night and were made to feel really welcome. We had room 14 which is small and downstairs but was perfectly adequate for one night. The en-suite is also small but the shower is amazing and everything is clean and tidy. Breakfast was great and with a pleasant lounge and wifi throughout is a good place...

Honestly couldn't of asked for a better place to stay! After arriving in Bath, we went straight to our hotel the Redcar! We immediately left! As we could not stay there! So avoid that place at all cost! We looked on trip advisor and came across Edgar Townhouse, we went straight there as it was around the corner! Amazing staff,...

Perfectly located to get to the rugby ground - the East gate entrance is a two minute walk away! Aside from that, the welcome we received was very warm - The Edgar had lovely comfortable, warm and cosy rooms. Nicely appointed and all very clean and tidy. Bathroom too was a very generous size. We were fortunate enough to be...
